Why would security firms be keen to stop the advance of a brand of malware that is a major cash cow for them? Only a fool would want to stop that malware from making bigger and bigger inroads into the world of Windows users and that should be obvious to anyone with the IQ of the common cockroach.
As a company, Microsoft may lack many attributes; it may be behind the curve on many things and may not be cool as some other tech firms. But in one aspect, the Redmond behemoth outdoes the rest in spades: chutzpah.
One reason why Microsoft stays silent about ransomware attacks on its Windows operating system is because the company makes money when it is called in to help tackle such attacks which are increasing all the time.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
